My name is Samuel Krost and I’m the founder of KROST, a mission-driven and philanthropic label. Our goal is to increase awareness surrounding different societal issues through the product we create, while supporting various non-profit organizations through grassroot initiatives and financial donations. I grew up in New Jersey and have been based in NYC for the past 10 years after attending NYU and majoring in business. My personal slogan is Support Your Friends. :)
MIMCHIK will be the hottest new women’s label based in LA.

Still Here is the best denim brand out there right now.
The first thing we always look for is alignment on the brand’s value, specifically whether the brand is focused on social good and impact. From a product standpoint, we’re always looking to introduce something new into the market versus updating an existing style or silhouette.
